Fire Department – Greenfield MA

Description

"The city of Greenfield, with a population of 15,500 in 1930, had not only outgrown its old fire headquarters but the location of the old building in the business district had become undesirable due to traffic congestion.

The new building has space for seven pieces of apparatus, as well as the chief's quarters and a watch room on the first floor. On the second floor are a recreation room, two dormitories, locker room, kitchen, library, officers' rooms, and the necessary toilets, showers, etc.

The exterior walls are water-struck red brick; the cornices, windows, doors, and cupola are wood; and the roof is slate.

The building is 74 by 82 feet in plan. It was completed in March 1937 at a construction cost of $89,761 and a project cost of $97,503."

    That station will be torn down in the next 30 to 60 days. It will be eventually be replaced in the next 2-3 years on the western end of Main St. The building is being removed for a new modern library.
